Swyping Is Easy. All you have to do is glide your fingers across the keyboard, and you're swyping. It's really that easy, as long as you know your keyboard layout. Swype makes it easy, and has a terrific algorithm to recognize what words you are trying to type based on where you swipe. It takes a bit of practice and getting used to, but it will quickly come naturally.
What is it about?
Swype is the original keyboard for swiping. The app uses intuitive language models to figure out what you're typing by how you swipe along the keys. It supports regional dialects, trending new words, and even a personal dictionary. Swype includes five free themes for your keyboard, and you can download more with an in-app purchase.
